Our Approach


  • At PARAGON STRENGTH & FITNESS we strive to give our clients personalized attention to meet all of their goals for fitness, health, nutrition, and training.  
  • We have created a private gym atmosphere where members feel relaxed and truly focus on themselves – uninterrupted by cell phones and daily demands on their time and attention – and instead experience the stress of their lives released through exercise.  


  • Our goal is to personally invest in our members and provide the ideal environment where our clients and athletes can put their all into the task at hand: completely transforming their bodies.


  • Equipped with specialized knowledge, scientific research, and 20 years of combined hands-on experience as Certified Personal Trainers (CPT), we love working with a wide spectrum of clientele. 
  • We serve businessmen and women, athletes, body builders, stay-at-home moms, actors, musicians, doctors, dentists, world class horse jumpers, photographers, construction workers, lawyers, nurses, teachers, golfers…. the list goes on, everyone can benefit from the proven PARAGON personal training approach.
